A Rural Vision for Wales - Thriving Communities for the Future: Evidence Report

27 Jan 2021


The Rural Vision has been commissioned by the WLGA Rural Forum – representing the nine predominantly rural local authorities of Anglesey, Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion, Conwy, Denbighshire, Gwynedd, Monmouthshire, Pembrokeshire and Powys – to develop a strategic framework for future policy impacting on rural Wales and to identify key policy asks for the Welsh and UK Governments.

The Rural Vision reflects the shared challenges faced by the WLGA Rural Forum members and their territories, from lower population densities, distance from major population centres and transport infrastructure, higher costs of delivery for public services, and the impacts of broad social and economic trends on rural communities.
